The firm's common shares outstanding decreased 2.6 million shares from the end of 2016 to 242.2 million at September 30, 2017. The firm expended $456.7 million during the first nine months of 2017 to repurchase 6.6 million shares, or 2.7%, of its outstanding common shares, including $9.7 million to repurchase 117,014 shares during the third quarter of 2017. The firm invested $129.1 million during the first nine months of 2017 in capitalized facilities and technology, and expects capital expenditures for 2017 to be up to $200 million, of which about two-thirds is planned for technology initiatives. These expenditures are expected to continue to be funded from operating resources.

In addition, 87% of the firm's rated Price Funds' assets under management ended the quarter with an overall rating of four or five stars from Morningstar. The performance of the firm's institutional strategies against their benchmarks remains very competitive, especially over longer time periods.

Financial Results Investment advisory revenues earned in the current quarter from the T. Rowe Price mutual funds distributed in the U.S. were $783.9 million, an increase of 11.4% from the comparable 2016 quarter. Average U.S. mutual fund assets under management increased 12.7% to $576.1 billion.

Investment advisory revenues earned in the current quarter from other investment portfolios were $312.8 million, an increase of 17.2% from the comparable 2016 quarter. Average assets under management for these portfolios increased 20.2% to $351.3 billion.

The firm has reduced the management fees of certain of its mutual funds and other investment portfolios since mid-2016. These reductions were a factor in why investment advisory revenue grew slower than average assets under management during 2017. The firm regularly assesses the competitiveness of its fees and will continue to make adjustments as deemed appropriate.

Operating expenses were $673.2 million in the third quarter of 2017, an increase of 9.1% from the comparable 2016 quarter. On a non-GAAP basis, our operating expenses increased $50.1 million, or 8.1%, to $665.7 million. The firm currently expects that its non-GAAP operating expenses will grow about 11% in 2017 versus 2016. This increase from previous guidance of about 10% results primarily from certain expenses, such as variable compensation, that have increased as a result of stronger than anticipated market performance.

Compensation and related costs were $417.4 million in the current quarter, an increase of 8.1% over the third quarter of 2016, due primarily to additional headcount, an increase in the interim accrual of the annual bonus, and higher benefits. Higher benefit expenses include additional compensation expense related to the supplemental savings plan as stronger equity markets have increased the liability. These increases were offset in part by higher labor capitalization related to internally developed software as the firm continues to invest in its technology capabilities. Average staff size increased by 7.0% from the third quarter of 2016, and the firm employed 6,796 associates at September 30, 2017.

Advertising and promotion costs were $14.0 million in the current quarter, compared with $14.7 million in the 2016 quarter. The firm currently expects advertising and promotion costs for 2017 to increase up to 10% over 2016 as the firm executes on its strategic initiatives.

Occupancy and facility costs, together with depreciation expense, were $84.0 million in the current quarter, an increase of 5.9% compared to the third quarter of 2016. The increase is due primarily to added costs to update and enhance technology capabilities, including related maintenance programs.

Other operating expenses were $120.4 million in the current quarter, an increase of 20.0% from the comparable 2016 quarter, as operational and regulatory business demands continue to grow.

Net non-operating income was $67.3 million in the current quarter, a decrease of $21.0 million from the third quarter of 2016. The components and variances are included in the table below:

The firm's effective tax rate for the third quarter of 2017 was 34.4%, compared with the full-year 2017 rate of 37.4% that the firm expected at the time of its second quarter earnings release. The number of stock option exercises and the related tax benefits recognized were higher than originally expected. The firm currently estimates its effective tax rate for 2017 will be about 35.9%.

Management Commentary William J. Stromberg, the company’s president and chief executive officer, commented: “U.S. stocks continued to rise in the third quarter, with most major indexes finishing September at or near record highs. Led by emerging markets, international stocks again outperformed U.S. shares as international currencies remained strong relative to the U.S. dollar. Healthy credit conditions contributed to positive fixed income returns globally, with non-U.S. and high yield debt outperforming other sectors.

"Our assets under management this quarter grew by nearly five percent, boosted by robust market returns and our highest level of net inflows since the first quarter of 2014. Our relative investment performance remained strong across asset classes and time periods, which helped drive increased client interest in our investment solutions and our approach to active investment management. We are encouraged by the green shoots of activity we see in key strategic areas.

"Highlights of our progress include: •

Multi-Asset Investing - We continue to grow our multi-asset capabilities and are delighted with the additions of a global solutions portfolio manager and three regional heads of multi-asset solutions for the U.S., EMEA, and Asia Pacific. We are also excited about several upcoming product launches.



U.S. Intermediaries - Our mutual funds are now available to retail investors and advisors on all major retail and RIA platforms with no transaction fee. Their inclusion earlier this year on Charles Schwab's

5

and Fidelity's NTF platforms is off to a strong start and contributing to market share growth for our U.S. intermediary channels. •

Global Product and Distribution - Activity outside the U.S. includes further buildout of our SICAV and OEIC lineups, and new business across EMEA and Asia Pacific. We also continue to develop new products across asset classes and geographies that are intended to broaden our product offerings.



New York Technology Development Center (TDC) - The New York TDC has moved to its permanent location in Midtown South, where a growing team of specialized technology professionals and data scientists is enhancing our capabilities to amplify the firm's use of advanced analytics, machine learning, and digital technologies to improve client experiences, enhance customer segmentation, and augment our investment process.

“Despite the competitive challenges from passive and intensified regulation, the outstanding work of our associates in delivering results and meeting the needs of our clients is keeping us on the right path for growth. We remain committed to the planned investments in our strategic initiatives and we are confident that this will strengthen our competitiveness and performance in the years ahead.”

Non-GAAP Information and Reconciliation The firm believes the non-GAAP financial measures below provide relevant and meaningful information to investors about its core operating results. These measures have been established in order to increase transparency for the purpose of evaluating the firm's core business, for comparing current results with prior period results, and to enable more appropriate comparison with industry peers. However, non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as a substitute for financial measures calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP and may be calculated differently by other companies. The following schedule (in millions, except for per-share amounts) reconciles U.S. GAAP financial measures to non-GAAP measures for the three- and nine-month period ended September 30, 2016 and 2017.

The non-GAAP adjustments add back the management fees that the firm earns from the consolidated sponsored investment portfolios and subtract the investment income and operating expenses of these portfolios that have been included in the firm's U.S. GAAP consolidated statements of income. Management believes the consolidated sponsored investment portfolios may impact the reader's ability to understand the firm's core operating results. The following table details the calculation of net income of consolidated sponsored investment portfolios, net of redeemable non-controlling interests:

This non-GAAP adjustment removes the impact of market movements on the supplemental savings plan liability and related investments designated as economic hedges of the liability beginning July 1, 2017. Amounts deferred under the supplemental savings plan are adjusted for appreciation (depreciation) of hypothetical investments chosen by the employee. Since the firm economically hedges the exposure to these market movements, management believes it is useful to offset the non-operating investment income earned on the hedges against the related compensation expense to increase comparability period to period.

This non-GAAP adjustment removes the non-operating income that remains after backing out the portion related to the consolidated sponsored investment portfolios and investments designated as an economic hedge of our supplemental savings plan liability. Management believes excluding non-operating income helps the reader's ability to understand the firm's core operating results and increases comparability to prior years. Additionally, management does not emphasize the impact of nonoperating income when managing the firm and evaluating its performance.

In the second quarter of 2016, the firm recognized a nonrecurring charge of $166.2 million related to the firm's decision to compensate certain clients in regard to the Dell appraisal rights matter. In the first quarter of 2017, the firm recognized insurance recoveries of $50 million as a reduction in operating expenses from claims that were filed in relation to the matter. Management believes it is useful to readers of the firm's consolidated statements of income to adjust for these charges and non-recurring insurance recoveries in arriving at adjusted operating expenses and net income attributable to T. Rowe Price Group, Inc. and diluted earnings per share, as this will aid with comparability to prior periods and analyzing the firm's core business results.

(5)

These were calculated using the effective tax rate applicable to the related items.

(6)

This non-GAAP measure was calculated by applying the two-class method to adjusted net income attributable to T. Rowe Price Group, Inc. divided by the weighted-average common shares outstanding assuming dilution.
